My reception was at Smithfield Center and I LOVED it. The first time I took a tour I knew I wanted my wedding there. The reception room has a deck on the back overlooking the water that is beautiful and it is very spacious. You can choose to have your ceremony on the deck but I chose to have it at Windsor Castle Park which is only a mile from the center and you also reserve that through the Smithfield Center. I worked with Amy and she was so easy to work with and always put my mind at ease with all my concerns. I highly recommend the Smithfield Center and Windsor Castle Park especially if you are having a rustic wedding : )Sent on 12/09/2014

Smithfield Center made our wedding day perfect! They provided a space for my bridesmaids and I to get dressed, they set up a room in case it rained (even though there was no rain in sight), and they had all of the tables and chairs ready to use on sight with no extra charge! We really couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. The back deck, where we got married, is large and has a beautiful view, and I loved that everything was all on one level, so that the older members of our families felt like they could easily move around. Smithfield Center did a great job at keeping in touch with me in the months before the wedding, and they were always so willing to answer any questions that I had, no matter how silly they may have seemed. I really cannot express how perfect Smithfield Center made our wedding day; I highly recommend them for your special day.Sent on 10/14/2017

As someone who works at different venues every weekend, take my word that a helpful, supportive, knowledgeable staff is worth its weight in gold and these people are nothing short of awesome!
